  • 3. Kaya Narrative P Our film is open narrative, Why? • Our film goes through a story of Laura finding out about the ghosts and the reasons for why they’re there, however at the end, we have a false ending. Laura will think she solved the problem and free the sprits, however, they will live on in the house and the problem will carry on, just not for Laura • It leaves the audience asking questions at the end How has it developed since Draft 1? • Since draft 1, we have had a closed narrative, however, because we have changed to the thriller genre we want to suit the conventions of how they generally end their films and they usually have false ending so we have developed it into a open narrative
  • 4. Kaya Narrative P Our film is non-linear narrative, Why? • Our film is a story that goes from start, middle, to end, however, in order to show what happened in the house years before we will show cuts from way in the past to the modern day START MIDDLE END How has this developed since draft 1? • From draft 1 we werent going to show the past time of what happened before, however now we are showing important moments from the past in order for the audience to understand

Kaya Film Theory Q Vladimir Propp – Film Theorist on characters contained in a film, Why we wont be using his theory… The villain – The two ghost are the villain type as they try to hurt Laura and disturb her life. The dispatcher – This doesnt apply to our film at all, there is no hero to send off The (magical) helper – Laura’s best friend Dawn helps her to take the dolls away The princess or prize – There is no prize and its based on real life Her father – She doesnt have a father, it’s a broken family The donor – The film is based on real life therefore no magical objects The hero or victim/seeker hero – Laura acts as a hero in helping the sprits pass on False hero – There is no hero therefore no false hero

  • 15. Kaya Titles S The ring During the opening of the ring, we were inspired by the white colour of the font making it look quite ghostly. Also the way the text is not in line made it seem more childlike, which we thought would link to our childish doll sentiments,
  • 16. Kaya Credits S Devil - 2010 We were inspired by the credits in Devil because of the way the credits come on screen then fade away after. We thought it suited our opening sequence in the sense that it’s calm, just like the beginning of ours and now too attention grabbing, so that our character is still the main focus.

  • 21. Kaya & Sanel Titles/Credits S Here are some of our idea’s of what we would like to use in our title Maids Maids Secrets secrets We like this font because it looks like We like this as its very conventional writing written in the 1800’s which is in ghost films and theres very when the ghost maids were living. minimal choice on IMovie so we Also we feel as though it suits our though this would be a good choice opening sequence. However, its not in font. very conventional to ghost films from It’s not too bold and goes well with the research shown and IMovie our opening sequence doesnt have must variety anyway
  • 22. Kaya & Sanel Titles/Credits S IDEAS FOR COLOUR OF FONT Maids secrets Maids secrets For the credits we cant to use the same font For the credits we cant to use the same font as our title called ’batang’. A colour we might as our title called ’batang’. A colour we might use is black as its simple, dark, and use is grey, because it looks mysterious mysterious. We feel it suits our opening however we didn’t like it cause it looked to sequence but it doesnt distract too much dull and weren’t very eye-catching. attention Maids secrets Maids secretsFor the credits we cant to use the same font as For the credits we cant to use the same fontour title called ’batang’. A colour we might use as our title called ’batang’. A colour we might is red, we feel it really suits our opening use is white. It’s the same colour as our titlesequence as it shows something bad happens would be as it goes with our opening like violence. The red would stand out during sequence of a spirit looking or wearing white our opening sequence so that could be a and so we think this looks well for our problem opening sequence.
  • 23. Kaya Inspirational L Non-diegetic sound The sound used in insidious opening sequence has greatly inspired me to use it through our opening sequence. It creates a big climax with tensions as well as making it uncomfortable and scary for the audience. It is a very high pitched violin sound which gets extremely fast when the tensions get to its highest points to a sudden stop or thud perfect to fit with our opening sequence

These categories are awarded where the material is suitable, in general, only for those aged 12 and over.

No one younger than 15 may rent or buy a ‘15’ rated video work.• Only adults are admitted. Nobody younger than 18 can rent or buy an 18-rated VHS, DVD, Blu-ray Disc, UMD or game, or watch a film in the cinema with this rating.
